Title: Geomorphic predictors of riparian vegetation in small mountain watersheds

Description: Hydrogeomorphic processes operating at watershed, process zone and site scales influence the distribution of riparian vegetation. However, most studies examining the relationships between hydrogeomorphic processes and riparian vegetation are conducted at site scales. We quantified the relative importance of watershed, process zone and site geomorphic characteristics for predicting riparian plant community types and plant species abundances in four small mountain watersheds in central Nevada, USA.

Keywords: Great Basin, multiscale, plant community analysis, process zone, riparian
